About Me
I started running at the age of seventeen after reading in a magazine that it could help clear acne. After a few months of training and equipped with a pair of plimsolls and a healthier complexion, I entered my first fun run – The 1983 Warminster Minithon. I completed the 5.3-mile course in 32 minutes beating many of the new running boom athletes. The following year (this time equipped with proper running shoes) I shaved almost two minutes off of my time to lift the Junior trophy.

I joined Avon Valley Runners in 1987 and managed to record a few Fun Run victories before giving up to injury in 1989, after an unsuccessful bilateral posterior-tibial decompression operation in an attempt to cure a recurrent case of shin splints.

In 1998 I decided to try my legs out running again in an attempt to loose weight – I had ballooned up to 15 stone!!! As I was living in South East London I joined Bexley based Cambridge Harriers and completed both the Dublin Marathon and the London Marathon. Following a move back to the South West I rejoined Avon Valley Runners in the Spring of 2001 and was elected Men’s Club Captain in January 2004.

I managed to persuade my family that I can do the Walt Disney World Marathon in January 2006 to celebrate my 40th birthday. I have now retired from running Marathons and taking up the position of Honorary Secretary at Avon Valley Runners.
